USTP Alubijid holds Plastic Waste Management Campaign
By Kimberly E. Maratas, USTP Alubijid Faculty
In June 2022, Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS) students from the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, and Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering programs of USTP Alubijid participated in community service through a Plastic Waste Management Campaign.
The activity forms part of the students’ requirement for the National Service Training Program (NSTP) for the second semester of school year 2022-2023, which mainly aims at reducing the single-use of plastic to almost zero by using empty plastic bottles as planters or flower pots to beautify the campus.
The campaign inspires the students to be physically active by participating in various cleanliness activities, such as recycling plastic waste, which produces several products, including garden sets, bricks, roof tiles, key holders, and flower pots.
